Churchill Polar Bears, 9th November 2015

This was an intensely cold day; most of the bears were sheltering from the -28C wind chill, conserving energy, and so appeared to be inactive. However, the stark beauty of the blowing snow was magical, and my patience was rewarded with a wonderful bear sighting in the rocks at Bird Cove as the light was fading. The evening also saw a second appearance during my visit of the Northern Lights, though this time only the more common green colours were visible, indicating a lower intensity solar storm.
